    Not sure if people are aware of this offer. I am an existing Dish customer. I called about a Dish 1000 upgrade. Phone gal said there was no upgrade program for existing customers at this time. I wanted to upgrade so I could get Voom HD without a second dish. When she entered my request into her computer for Voom, it spit out a code that let her offer me a Dish 1000 upgrade for $59.95. She said she hadn't been told anything about this offer and was suprised to see it. She set me up and it was installed three days later and I'm good to go. Seemed like a good deal????

    Do you receive all of your subscribed local channels? If any of your subscribed locals are on the 129 satellite the dish is free. Check on the link that I provided.

    Non of my locals are on 129, so I guess it's not a bad deal. I called into the Charlie Chat and because of so many calls, I ended up talking to the person I did. It just seemed strange that the person on the phone knew nothing about the program. When I called a few weeks before about Voom, they wanted to add a 2nd dish and charge me $99 to get the programming.

    Thanks for the info - supposedly, I'm getting a Dish1000 + 148 on Jan. 10th.

    I was wondering what that "ESPN2HD" MPEG4 entry was...

    ESPN2 HD has since been changed to indicate an Mpeg2 stream will be provided. Of course, wait 'til launch to see for sure.

    I was told that the $59.95 price was with a one year commitment, otherwise it was still $99.00.
